Hospitality is something I am very passionate about. Being in the Hospitality program at Vancouver Island University has taught me a lot of great things about the hotel and restaurant Industry. This is giving me a huge opportunity to build my career in this most dynamic industry. The professors are very knowledgeable and experienced in the field and always bring in real working situations while teaching. The best part of this course is that we can get three co-op opportunities during four years, so that once we graduate, we've gotten some experience already which is better for seeking a job. VIU has given me the great tools to immediately enter my career with confidence. I had so much fun and made lots of friends here in these four years. VIU definitely provides a top-ranking study environment and quality of education.

Betty graduated with a Bachelor of Hospitality Management
